Danielle Page Durbin Franks Orton, 51, of Phoenix, Ariz., departed this life on May 14, 2011, at PCU, Hospice of the Valley, Surprise, Ariz.

She was born in Moline on May 22, 1964, and she had one son, Alexander Richard Franks, of Crawfordsville, Ind.

Danielle entered this world with a level of imagination unparalleled, filled with a gypsy soul. Her outlook on life was far-reaching and beyond boundaries. She lived an adventurous journey on this earth with a fearless and powerful spirit. Through her amazing artistry, one could get a glimpse into her beautiful soul -- like a piece of tie-dye, the defined lines fade; undefined, colorfully free. Her finest work of art was her son, Alex, who meant the world to her and was a source of endless love in her heart. Throughout her journey in this life, Danielle inspired everyone she touched during her travels with her humor and ability to love vigorously. She made friends wherever life took her and reveled in the beauty of nature and all its creatures. The final mosaic of her life was cemented with the unconditional love of her family and many friends which comprised all of the intimate pieces that created the masterpiece of her life.

"You've always had the power, my dear, you just had to learn it for yourself." - Glinda, Wizard of Oz, a message realized from her favorite movie.

Danielle's favorite mountain will welcome her earthly remains at a later time in the presence of loved ones.
